When you first start in Remnant 2, you’ll only have access to your starting weapons, and since you won’t have any scrap/money, you can’t purchase new ones. However, there’s a decent starting weapon that you can find right at the start, which can be found once you open the chest found in Founder’s Ford’s room.
This guide explains how to access open that chest, start a very short questline, and reap the reward at the end of it.
Opening the chest found in Ward 13
First, either play through the tutorial or head back to Ward 13. At the story’s start, Founder Ford will give you a flashlight, which is critical to getting this item.
Head back to where you first met Founder Ford, and you’ll see a chest in his room.
You won’t know the numbers to unlock it. However, Ford actually gave them to you. If you inspect the underside of the flashlight, you’ll see the numbers “0415.”
Entering these numbers in the chest will unlock it.
Once the chest is unlocked, you’ll find the cargo container key, which can be used at a different location.
You’ll then have to head to the north West of Ward 13, to the area where all the cargo containers are. It’s slightly right to the path Founder Ford took you at the beginning of the game.
Once there, you’ll find a locked door at the end of the twisting hallway. It’s here that you’ll use this key.
Upon opening the door, you’ll find the MP60-R resting on a desk to the left.
You may also notice there’s another weapon behind the glass. Please don’t waste your time trying to get to it, as you won’t be able to access it until later in the game.
